to you. >> about time. thank you very much. >>> let's talk about the nsa. another revelation came out yesterday afternoon and it turns out that they have -- they have released additional information over the past -- since 2008 on things that have gone wrong in the nsa collection. for example, there was a redacted page which is unredacted and classified yesterday that revealed that we have collected 56,000 wholly domestic communications each year. so this is done, nothing was necessarily done with it. nothing was exposed by it. but these were collected and the fisa court judge did not know about it and he rebuked the nsa for doing that and they said they were unintentional errors. >> we have been talking for a while about the nsa, how they're saying trust us, we're not doing anything illegal. the stuff that was declassified yesterday said they didn't break some laws. they violated -- the nsa violated the constitution three times in three years. violated the constitution because they did as brian said go through our e-mails, domestic e-mails, rather than just the foreign stuff. remember
shows and lon snowden, father of edward snowden, the n.s.a. leaker, was on some of the chat shows and he was responding to what the president said during his press conference the day before about his son. i know eric, you're close to this story. you've spoken to the father before. >>eric: i have. i've spoken to lon personally. he's very concerned, a concerned father. he's also a concerned american. he's worried about what's going on. listen to what he had to say. he was with his attorney on one of the talk shows. >> at this point what i would like is for this to be vetted in open court for the american people to have all the facts. what i've seen is much political theater. i was dis pointed in the president's press conference. i believe that's driven by his clear understanding that the american people are absolutely unhappy with what they've learned and that more is going to be forthcoming. we do have a perception problem and we have to deal with that. we need to let the american public know that this program is a program that protects them but does not violate their privacy. for an indi
it is fast and furious, whether it is benghazi, whether it is the n.s.a., you are never getting information. >>steve: some of the president's critics are saying the only reason we have heard about this particular terror threat at our embassies and diplomatic posts throughout the arab world is because in past administrations in the bush years, they never would have made such a big deal out of it. but right now the subtle message is, look, we were able to listen to this particular conversation between al-zawahiri and the guy who runs al qaeda in the arabian peninsula through the n.s.a. program so folks don't feel bad about the n.s.a. program. >> we'll wait and see what happens with this. if there is nothing that happens, we'll have to say you blew contacts, you blew sources and methods. was it to distract us from other issues. you know what makes me maddest of all? where's the media? when i was in the nixon administration, if the nixon administration had not turned over documents, you would have heard about it from every media source. they would have been screaming and crying. in this case th
said it was serious. 17% said phony. on n.s.a., 69% serious about the government look at your e-mails and phone calls. 26% phony. >>steve: then the d.o.j., 59%. look at the i.r.s., 33% of americans say it's a phony scandal, which is extraordinary because we had lois lerner actually apologize. we did it, we're sorry. >>peter: and take the fifth amendment. >>steve: exactly right. yet maybe the president has been very effective in branding it a phony scandal. all i know is there's a double standard going on here because if this was the i.r.s. targeting left-leaning groups, you've got to figure that every night for three months diane sawyer and brian williams would leave their news -- lead their newscast with that story. >>peter: the implicit message is it's just the tea party. it doesn't concern you. we can violate their rights and not yours. >>steve: just thought we'd let you know still going on. >>anna: 11 minutes after the hour. take a good look at what you get for all those baggage fees. your precious cargo tossed around and left out in the rain. it's the video one major airlin
